Modeling news:
We talked about, LVMH’s new site, the Nowness. Here’s Guinevere Van Seenus for Rodarte, which premiered yesterday.

One of my personal FAVORITE models of all time: Renee Simonsen. Ford gives us an overview of her career and what she’s up to now!

Russian girls are always stunning. Check out this new young lady with Women Milan.

Jessica Stam and Agyness Deyn to design! 2 more model slashes!

Coco Rocha is engaged! Congrats!! And speaking of Coco, Fashion Week Daily takes to the streets to find out who/what people think a “Coco Rocha” is...

We agree with Jezebel, why are there blondes on these covers?

And yes, more models of color on the runway, please. 16% non-white is still not enough.

How cool are Greg Kessler‘s Model Morphosis for the NY Times?

The fashion industry is filled with people with unhealthy habits. For the young models who are struggling with their weight, please don’t ever let it get to this point (and if it does, get help).

Karen Elson is Fierce with a capital “F”. Gorgeous, funny, and talented? You’ve doing better than 90% of the TV/movie stars out there, Karen!

Another wonderful young lady that we adore, Agyness Deyn shows us another side to her multi faceted life.

Fashion and media:
Another reason we love Grace Coddington and Andre Leon Talley. They are old school with a capital O.

Guy Trebay, of the NY Times talks to WWD about the new media and bloggers. See what he thinks about Tavi and Bryanboy.

Miscellaneous:
Funny, funny post on Olivier Zahm by Frockwriter.

In the wake of Alexander McQueen‘s tragic death by suicide, it is really great to see the work Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe is doing. If only more people in high profile industries would give back to the world like this….

Read photographer David Benjamin Sherry’s open and wonderfully refreshing interview on being gay and how photographer Collier Schorr was his professor!

    God forbid you put a Korean model on a Korean cover

    At the same time though , Jessica Stam does look amazing on the cover of Turkish vogue . I am always more likely to pick up a magazine with a model on the cover as opposed to a actor or something . Jessica Stam is basically a supermodel at this stage . It makes sense Turkish vogue would want to launch with a {,in some circles,}celebrity to catch the attention of the public .

  8. JT says:

    Meghan Collison had a W cover too, why didn’t you put her up?

  9. JT says:

    Oops… sorry, didn’t see under!! My bad. You guys are the best.

  10. anton says:

    MEGHAN COLLISON YOU ARE DIVINE !!!

  11. ela says:

    Seriously though why even bother to have a W Korea, and no Korean model on the cover? Are they going to tell me that finding 3 good Korean model is impossible?

  12. Caroline says:

    I don’t think Alexander McQueen killed himself because he was struggling with his sexuality…

  13. peterModelObsessed says:

    Whining about not having real Korean models in W Korea is like whining about not having real Supermodels in US Vogue. Its useless at this point……..

    I guess we just have to live with it.

  14. yuchaehwa says:

  15. Marilyn says:
